Submission + - First images from the Herschel telescope!

Vincenzo Romano writes: Accordingly to the HSC Operations (B)Log, the operations centre for the Herschel Space Centre (HSC for friends), some 'First Light' images "seen" by the HSC will be released this friday on the web.

A collection of 'First Light' images and spectra taken by the three instruments onboard Herschel during the days following the cryo-cover opening will be publicly made available this Friday 10 July. Watch out for the accompanying set of coordinated web releases by ESA and the different ICC consortia!

The Herschel Space Observatory is an infrared telescope that will examine the faint emissions from objects at the edge of the solar system as well as galaxies billions of light-years from Earth.
It was originally proposed back in 1982 by a consortium of European scientists and has been actually launched on last May 14th along with his brother, the Planck Observatory, designed to scan the cosmic microwave background radiation (CMB) in unprecedented detail.
